What was the largest bear ever hunted?

Question: Was the largest bear ever felled by a primitive hunter a black bear, a grizzly bear, a brown bear or a polar bear?

Answer:
None of the above! The largest bear ever felled by a primitive hunter was the Short Faced bear, arctodus simus, that lived 5,000 years ago in Pennsylvania, northern Mexico, California and the Yukon. This bear was indeed hunted (and no doubt vice versa) by primitive man as evidenced by cut marks found on fossil remains. An average Short Faced bear probably stood 5 to 6 feet at the shoulder when on all fours and 12 to 14 feet when erect. He also had a nine-foot arm span. A so-so male probably weighed 2,575 pounds! A “trophy” however probably exceeded 5,000 pounds, and stood over 20 feet tall! Talk about the good old days!
